Motivate yourself to take upon a career that brings you a sense of fulfillment. If you've always dreamed of making movies, take movie-making classes while you're still stuck in your current job. Take steps towards achieving your passion, you'll sooner or later end up doing what you love.
Look at the bright side of your job
No matter how much you love your job, there will be parts of it that you have to endure. For example, if you're a receptionist, you might love dealing with people everyday but on the downside there will be no respite from the paperwork. To help yourself tide over such hurdles, develop a strategy that will help you focus maximum time on the things you love. Get to the paperwork first thing in the morning when you're fresh and in a mood to accomplish things. This way, you'll complete the task faster and you can finally focus on the parts of your job you love.
Be in the company of people who understand your passion

Sometimes you might feel despondent even after all the perseverance, and that's when you need the company of people who are forbearing and share your passion. As a media professional, you might be ecstatic that a well-known brand decided to go ahead with the tagline you suggested. Your friends and family might not understand why you're so happy about it, but your colleagues will understand your euphoria.
